COVID Drive-Through Testing Site at UTEP Has Transitioned to Test Kit Kiosk
The City of El Paso is offering free COVID-19 PCR testing through a kiosk located on UTEP property at 3333 N. Mesa St. at Kern Drive.
The kiosk has replaced the site’s drive-through testing option and expanded COVID-19 testing access to members of the UTEP and El Paso communities. The drive-through testing site closed Oct. 14.
The TestandGo© Fully Automated Healthcare Kiosk is sponsored by the City of El Paso in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Increasing Community Access to Testing program (CDC ICATT).
The kiosk will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Testing is free for individuals who are symptomatic, have been exposed, or are at high risk of severe outcomes, regardless of insurance status.
Easy to Use Self-Testing Kiosk
Stop by the kiosk and access the registration app by scanning the QR code at the machine. After you register, scan your QR confirmation code at the kiosk and a test kit will be dispensed. Follow the instructions in the kit to perform the test. The test uses a nasal swab to collect the specimen. Once the specimen is collected, drop off your sample in the kiosk’s collection box. Specimens are picked up daily for PCR testing.
Test results will be sent via text or email within 48 hours from pick up time. For questions about test results, call 800-402-0000 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EST) Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (EST) Saturday.
